but i miss you most of all, my darling, when autumn leaves start to fall...

Soon, I will be selling my desktop because I'll be leaving to go abroad fairly soon for the fall semester (i'm going to buy a laptop when I get back).
I'm heading to the dominican republic, which I'm incredibly excited about.. I can't wait to live somewhere other than the U.S. one of my goals in life is to become an ex-pat eventually haha
Anyway, the reason i mentioned selling my computer is that I'm going to make a very image heavy post, because it's probably the last time i'll post for about 5 months.
So, i both wanted to remind you all what my dreads looked like, and also ask is anyone has had any experiences in the DR, with dreads or without. I've been told that I'll get made fun of for my hair, but nothing serious.


at any rate, here is the wicked picture heavy portion of my post... lots of different shots....


I started out in my room taking a few photos here and there, so you can see the back
